Maisie Peters’ touring crew presents a tremendously dreamy production

After a whopping 248 days on the road in 2023, Maisie Peters and her new-look touring camp return to the touring circuit with a tremendously dreamy production…

After becoming the youngest British female solo artist to scoop a number-one album in almost a decade, Maisie Peters is among the leading voices in modern British pop music, from busking on the streets of Brighton through to supporting Ed Sheeran worldwide, and performing to a sold-out OVO Arena Wembley at the tail end of 2023. The singer recently embarked on yet another European tour, where TPi caught up with her production team at L’Olympia in Paris to delve into her growth as a 23-year-old artist and the broadening of her live output.

Introducing TPi to the camp on the second day of the tour was Tour Manager, Harry Bullas, of Riverjuke, who has been with Maisie Peters since 2018 and instantly made anyone outside of their touring bubble feel welcome: “We want you to come in and feel welcome because everyone is genuinely friends,” he began. “Last year, we were on the road for 248 days, so a lot of the core crew did over half a year with us and within that, we’ve been through thick and thin to four different continents.”

Tackling the brunt of the production is Bullas, who has taken on this responsibility since the start with Maisie Peters from 320-capacity venues to the 12,500-capacity OVO Wembley Arena where he had to enlist the help of Production Manager, Dave Glover to share the workload of an arena production. Thanks to Glover’s work with the camp, the crew ran like a well-oiled machine for the extra European run and subsequent Australia dates. “As it grows our supplier relationships really matter,” Bullas continued. “We can run cleanly and a lot of that is because of the suppliers.”
